Every mom needs time off Happy mothers are not afraid to ask for help from family and friends. Be proactive. Interview babysitters ahead of time so you have one or two on hand when family isn’t an option. Having trouble even finding a valid option to trust? Think about asking others in your mom groups. Taking turns watching each other’s children can open up wonderful opportunities.
Bask in the sun No matter the list of things you think you need to accomplish today, go outside. Push the stroller around the block or go to the park. Other than the health benefits, this also gets you out and about and able to meet new people. Look around the playground. Who looks happy? Go talk to her, right now.
Plan something big Many moms work hard to save every penny they can by clipping coupons or making their own cleaning supplies. Don’t forget to put some of that saved money aside for a vacation because eventually it adds up to enough. You’ll remember why you spend so much time doing laundry for your loved ones when you have free time away from it to spend with them.
Sleep is your miracle medicine Lack of sleep is hazardous to your health. Those missing ZZZzzzs lower your immune system as well as cause a myriad of other issues including depression. Many moms make the mistake of running themselves ragged cleaning the house after the baby finally falls asleep. Happy moms take the break to sleep as well.
One is not the loneliest number Carving out time away from the kids is crucial, whether it’s poker night with the girls or just a long bath with a magazine.Mom’s lives can get so busy with cleaning, cooking, running errands and playing, all while trying to deal with finances, kissing boo-boos and singing songs. Do something you love EVERY day.
